Former UFC Champ Brock Lesnar Discusses Working With Vince McMahon & Dana White: "I Really Can't Compare The Two Guys"

Former UFC heavyweight champion and WWE star, Brock Lesnar, discussed the differences between working with UFC President Dana White and WWE CEO Vince McMahon.

Lesnar spoke with Pat McAfee on the latest edition of his podcast The Pat McAfee Show and opened up on his relationships with both McMahon and White, saying it's hard to even compare the two legendary promoters.

“I really can’t compare the two guys,” Lesnar said (h/t MMA Junkie). “Honestly, my relationship with Vince is so different than it is with Dana over the years. Vince and I have had a love-hate relationship for the last 20 years, but it’s been good. We’ve got a lot of water under the bridge. I have a lot of respect for both men. But dealing with Dana, it’s just a totally different business approach. I met Vince when I was younger. I look at Vince more as a father figure actually because I’ve learned a lot of things from him, and I was able to carry those things over and handle business with Dana. Vince is a self-made person, so is Dana. Took the company and made it public.”

He continued on to reveal he only occasionally still watches MMA, and thinks the UFC can do a better job of booking fights to build up their stars.

“I don’t watch a lot of fighting anymore,” Lesnar said. “It’s just (that) there’s so many guys, it’s hard to follow. I wish Dana could figure out how to book things different and like – come on, man, let’s start getting behind some of these guys and protect somebody for a while so that they can become a household name and you can cha-ching them. But he’s in the business of putting on super fights every week, and it’s tough to do, and it’s tough to stay on top.”
